A - Golden brown with a half inch white head.

S - Hops all the way.

T - Hops once again. This is amazing. It is all about the hops. None of the side nonsense. This is what I think a solid ipa should be all about.

M - Nice medium carbonation. Very clean and crisp.

O - No complaints here. All around a great ipa.

Thanks to TheDankOne for hooking me up with this bottle.

A - Pouring into a pint glass produces a half inch of sticky white head. The head retention is excellent and leaves generous lacing on the inside of the glass. The beer is clear and golden with orange highlights.

S - The nose is nice and hop forward. There is juicy citrus and tropical notes throughout. In addition there is a light caramel aroma.

M - Light to medium in body with active carbonation. Slightly resinous and dry.

T - Wow, this beer produces an amazing tropical flavor profile. There is pineapple, mango and citrus present. There's a small amount of grapefruit in the finish with a fairly low bitterness thanks to the complementing caramel malt backbone.

This beer is so refreshing and well balanced that I wish it was distributed in my neck of the woods. It's an outstanding IPA and could easily hang out with the other awesome IPAs that are out there. This beer has inspired me to look into creating an IPA with Columbus, Centennial, and Amarillo hops.

This was a gift from Carla & Mark - Thanks much guys! Excellent brew! Had a nice, tho short lived head and a clear amber color. Aroma is a super fresh hop; heavy grapefruit. Flavor is also very fresh and fits the style so well. Palate is perfect. Finish is like flavor, nothing off, very drinkable. Wish I had more.

XicanoBeerRun shared this with me.

This looks resplendent, a golden yellow with billowy foam that dissipates into a tight, thin lace. Aroma is amazing, just a full-breath of grassy pine goodness. Flavor leaps off the palate. Very crisp, very sharp, very much grassy-pine like the aroma. Tastes incredible, finishes leaving me wanting another. Loved it!

Pours a clear, deep golden color with a thick white head that leaves loads of lacing.

Smells of citrus, and floral hops.

Tastes of big delicious hops. Notes of grapefruit with a good amount of bitterness. Some floral and grassy notes come through as well. A bit of tropical type fruits come through with mango and pineapple. Pale malts are well represented with a bit of bread and a small sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Pours a deep golden hue with a bit of orange. Nice off white, lasting head. Just a slight bit of chill or hop haze.

The aroma is divine...smells like an IPA should smell. Loaded with hop aroma of grapefruit and passionfruit.

Flavor has an underlying maltiness to balance all the hops in this one. Detect some mango flavors, definite citrus hop flavor. The hops coat the tongue and linger long after swallowing.

Light to medium body, nice moderate carbonation level. I love the lighter bodied and colored IPA's, yet this one has enough malt to balance nicely with the hops.

Fantastic IPA...although I admit I may be a little biased when it comes to this hometown brewery. I have always been a fan of Ted's beers!

(Served in an American pint glass)

A- This beer pours a deep coppery yellow clear body with a good carbonation of tiny bubbles and a thick white spongy head that turns to a thick meniscus and last for the full beer. There are thick clouds of foam that stick as registry marks on the glass after each sip.

S- Big juicy green hops with a pine and citrus aroma have a faint bitter note in the finish. The hops come through even during the pour.

T- Fresh juicy green hops taste with a slight sweet malty taste behind it. There is some bold pine flavors with some limy citrus flavors and a light cat pee flavor (which is a tasty thing). This beer finishes with a soft hop bitterness that lingers just briefly after each sip.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a tight little fizz and no alcohol heat at all.

D- This beer has wonderful fresh bold hops that are well supported by a sweet malt base and bitterness. This beer has one of the best hops flavors and aromas while still being very drinkable and it was a nice session beer. The hop bitterness takes a bit of a step forward as the beer warms but it is always in check. I drank one of these following a nice greasy Monte Cristo sandwich and thought I was in heaven.

The march towards incredible beers in cans continues. This beer had the most fragrant hop aroma I have ever experience for a beer in a can. Clean, crisp citrus joy. The flavor was also outstanding. Light yet full of great piney citrus flavor. A very drinkable IPA.

poured ok with single finger head, color golden with good carbonation action.

smell is great with floral and citrus burst that tell me "this may be good"...

taste fulfils the smell with all flavors the nose decribed earlier..flowery first then citrus but finishes with slight bitterness that somehow holds the fruit for a great finish and great bitter feel

im a bigtime ipa guy and this is my first review...i had to write about this beer...its in my top 2 or 3 ipa's

must buy must try
